Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Sorry I’ve been MIA the last few days. Good news: I had 11 views yesterday, and only need 6 more to have 100 in the month of July! So send the link to this blog to your friends who you think will enjoy it, and I will be eternally grateful. I only have one more …

Secret Society by Tom Dolby

This is a random judge a book by its cover purchase from Barnes and Noble. I think I bought it before I went to Turks and Caicos in November, but I honestly have no idea. Sorry about the lack of a post yesterday: I had work and then a friend of mine that I haven’t …

Dangerous Neighbors by Beth Kephart

My last PAYA Festival 2011 book 😦 I’m glad I only have a couple of weeks until I can buy a ton more books!! If you like: historical fiction, Philadelphia, drama, siblings, a little bit of romance, the Centennial fair of 1876, and twins, you will like this book. Katherine and Anna had a bond …

Tunnel Vision by Susan Shaw

Second to last PAYA Festival book! And an announcement: I may have to start doing reviews three days a week instead of five. I have two incredibly boring fun-sucking books to read for school, one that may not be too soul-sucking, a Calculus math packet created by Satan himself, and I’m working five days a …

Everlasting by Angie Frazier

Almost at the end of my PAYA Festival 2011 books! 😦 As I mentioned previously, the PAYA Festival has raffles where you can win books and stuff, and last year I bought a bunch of tickets and entered them in a bunch of raffles, including one that didn’t have any other tickets in it. And …

Jane by April Lindner

Another excellent PAYA Festival book! I hope that all of you are interested in attending this year’s festival are looking deeper into it. It’s really fun: there’s food, raffles, books to purchase, and tons of YA authors reading and excited about autographing your copy of their book! Check it out here. Not much more that …

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Taking a break from last year’s PAYA reviews to bring you this dystopian novel! Somewhere in my Internet travels, I read a bunch of reviews that said this book wasn’t very good, it didn’t have a good plot, the characters were flat, blah blah, etc. I however, found it through one of my spastic Barnes …

Starstruck by Cyn Balog

Is anyone surprised to learn that I am re-reading all of the books I bought at last year’s PAYA Festival in the hopes that I can tell some of the returning authors that I reviewed their books at this years PAYA Festival? No? Me neither. It’s not like it’s some huge chore (infinitely better than …

Sleepless by Cyn Balog

As I mentioned on my second ever review, Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog, last August I went to the annual PAYA Festival in West Chester, and it was amazing. I was nearly washed away by Hurricane Irene in the process, but nearly breaking my ankle while running through puddles of water was worth it, just to …

Partials by Dan Wells

I just reviewed Dan Wells’ brother’s book yesterday, but I read this book way before I read Variant. If you’ve ever seen I Am Legend starring Will Smith (who I seriously love — repping Philly! WOO!), this book reminds me a lot of that movie. I’m a really big wimp, so (*this is a true story*) in …
